1. Jack Rose Marker
Inscription.  On this site in 1947, pioneer Veutura merchant Jack Rose built what was said to be the largest and most contemporary women's apparel store on the Pacific Coast. Designed by renowned architect Arthur Froehlich, the distinctive 36,000 square foot Streamline Moderne style building had something for women or all ages: Clothing, shoes, jewelry, furs and a beauty salon. The grand central staircase was the scene of many elegant fashion shows.

Jack Rose, who opened his first store in the Arcade Building on Main Street to 1925, was the first to offer Ventura County women fashionable styles "off the rack."
